A Wood Fence to Fit Your Budget

A wood fence offers you the most value for your dollar. When you’re fencing in a large area like a backyard, wood is a strong choice.

Because of the high quality of lumber used, our wood fences resist rot, waterlogging, UV damage, and breakage. You save money in the long run working with a company who uses high-quality materials because you spend less on maintenance.

While it’s not necessary to stain and paint wood fences, some may prefer the overall appearance of a stained or painted fence.

Transform your yard into an extension of your living space with a traditional preserved wood fence. A quality fence installed by Long® Fence can dramatically increase both the curb appeal and property value of your home!

Types of Wood Fencing

We work with a few different types of treated wood for our fencing projects. Our team will go over your options with you and help you decide what type of wood works best for your home.

You should also know that while other types of boards may be used in the construction of your fence, the framework of your fence will be built using pressure-treated lumber because it excels below ground.

Since we also build custom-designed fences, whatever your vision is for your home we can make it a reality. We do have two types of wood we use primarily though:


Long® Fence installs wood fencing primarily using Micropro™ treated wood which contains a nonmetallic preservative to resist rot, decay and termites. For long life and low maintenance, Micropro™ also contains stabilizers to curb weathering and minimize swelling and shrinking. With the range of weather we see throughout the year, it’s important to use materials that perform well.

The extended life of the wood makes it more environmentally friendly and cost-effective. We use Micropro™ wood because it offers the natural beauty of wood with less upkeep for the homeowner.


For consumers looking for a non-pressure-treated alternative for the boards that comprise the fence, Long® Fence also carries western red cedar wood fencing. Western red cedar has been the wood of choice for builders and homeowners for decades. And for good reason.

Natural oils in western red cedar wood fences provide a level of protection for the wood. Western red cedar naturally resists moisture, decay and insect damage. While all lumber shrinks, cedar has less tendency to shrink, swell, cup, twist, or warp even under extreme weather conditions.

Western red cedar offers a beautiful, classic look without sacrificing durability. If you want a more natural aesthetic for your property’s fencing, western red cedar might be the right choice for you.

Wood Fence Styles and Designs

What is the right style of wood fence for your home’s look? We offer a wide array of designs and styles so that your vision can have the exact aesthetic you want. We can design and build a fence that meets your needs.

Whether you want a pastoral look for your property, a classic, welcoming picket fence, or a sturdy privacy fence, we can build it. Not only the sections, but we also have options for different posts and gates that can change the aesthetic dramatically. Stains are up to the client to apply.

Semi-private fences are constructed with alternating boards placed on both sides of the fence, giving an even appearance. Often called “good neighbor” fence, this style also withstands high winds better than a solid board fence. Post and rail fences can be enhanced with mesh wire to contain pets. A picket fence can have a variety of looks, whether dipped, arched or straight. Pickets can be gothic, colonial gothic, or dog-eared.

Latticework can be used to accent a privacy or semi-private fence. Post caps and finials can provide an architectural detail to a picket or any other type of fence. No matter what the style of fence, a wide variety of accessories exist to develop a custom look.

Why stop with a wood fence? The same accessorizing features that make your fence special can be utilized with other projects.

A deck and rail system can also complement a wood fence. For a private backyard getaway, homeowners could construct a gazebo or an arbor or trellis to suit their tastes. Gates can be built to match or designed in a way that sets them apart from the fence. Since wood can be stained, painted, or shaped in many different ways, it’s possible to coordinate a variety of projects to match.

Long Fence Custom Wood Fences

We also design custom wood fences. That includes using different materials and building to custom specs as well as new and innovative designs. We can also build wood gates of varying widths complement the specific look of your home and fencing. Long Fence covers every part of your fencing needs.
